1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
This is a multi-year program to encourage parents to read aloud 1,000 books with their children before they enter five-year-old Kindergarten. We invite you and your child to embark on a fantastic adventure together that’s sure to create a lifelong love of reading! Although it may sound overwhelming to imagine reading 1,000 books before Kindergarten, it is not very difficult with an early start. At the rate of just one book per day, it takes less than three years. Sign up at the library to receive a book bag and your first reading record!
